Thank your water and sewer workers

To the editor:

As I watch media coverage of the COVID-19, I constantly hear about the brave people on the front line. Doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, and so on. But I never hear anyone mention two very important providers! Water and wastewater!

People enjoy turning on their faucet and clean water comes out. People enjoy flushing their toilet and having water flow down the drain without dealing with it. People do not realize there are hard-working operators at the other end providing this service.

With the unknown of how the virus spreads, these workers are at risk. They still go to work every day providing a valuable service to us — a service everyone takes for granted.
